So got an unexpected break on my code sample. I checked the text input keyboard options and I can specify a purely numeric keyboard. It makes sense that Apple would make it easy to idiot-proof apps for their devices. So something I worried about figuring out is taken care of.
The big thing I am trying to focus on right now is setting up the picker. I want to have a text box that brings up a picker instead of a keyboard. This should not be that hard. I see this all the time in apps I use. I am having a little difficulty figuring this out.
I believe I read somewhere that you can specify a UIPicker instance as the input for a text box, but this isn’t something I am seeing commonly in my books.
A lot of my books don’t talk about stuff that I find to pertinent. I don’t know if it’s because what I want to do is so easy that no one thinks it is relevant to talk about or if it is overly complex.
Maybe I will write a code recipe book for beginning coders who want to do some specific things. By the time I get done writing it the code will be deprecated.
Always look on the bright side of life…
Also super happy that it is easy to determine which comments on my blog are spam. First off, all but one so far is spam. Second, I can safely assume if a comment includes a link to something consumer related it is spam. For some reason spammers think that people who read my blog want to buy $500 shoes.
My favorite spam comment so far is one insulting me. I deleted it, so I can’t remember the whole comment, but it went along the lines that what I was writing about provided no insight into anything and all of my thoughts were derivative. Oh, and by the way, go to this site to buy Air Jordans!
